Everyone is looking for the best wholesale hair vendors in China, India, Atlanta, and around the world.

What about you? Do you know how to find a wholesale vendor?

- If you have any wholesale or hair questions, just leave them in the comments below!

Having a good supply of human hair extensions is going to be a crucial part of your hair business. In this article, we are going to go over what people are currently looking for, what you should be looking for, and possibly how Private Label Wholesale can help.

The goal of Private Label Wholesale was to take the benefits of working with an overseas vendor and combining it with a USA based vendor to create a winning hair supply solution.

Let's break this down step-by-step so that you can make your own vendor decisions.

  1. What Are People Looking For in a Wholesale Hair Vendor?
  2. What Types of Human Hair Are Sold By Hair Vendors?
  3. Is Raw Hair Worth the Cost?
  4. Why is Wholesale Human Hair, Virgin Hair, and Remy Hair So Popular?
  5. How Do I Find a Wholesale Hair Vendor?
  6. How Do I Send Payments to Purchase Wholesale Hair?
  7. Should I Order Hair Samples?
  8. Why Should I Consider Private Label Wholesale As My Hair Vendor?

What are People Looking for in a Wholesale Hair Vendor?

Every day people are on the hunt for two types of hair vendors.

These are the top 5 most popular types of hair people are looking for:

  • Wholesale Vendors for Virgin Hair
  • Wholesale Mink Hair Vendors
  • Wholesale Vendors for Brazilian Hair
  • Wholesale Human Hair Vendors
  • Wholesale Raw Hair Vendors

The "mink hair" still kills me, but we can talk about that more later in the article.

Looking for "human hair," "virgin hair," and "raw hair" makes more sense as this is what you should be interested in selling.

Others are looking for wholesale vendors in a particular area.

These are the top 5 categories hair entrepreneurs are looking for:

  • Wholesale Hair Vendors in India
  • Wholesale Hair Vendors in Atlanta
  • Wholesale Virgin Hair Vendors in China
  • Wholesale Hair Vendors Near Me
  • Wholesale Hair Vendors in the USA

You will find many people are looking for overseas hair vendors, but Atlanta is one of the meccas of hair weave, so it's obviously on the list.

What Types of Human Hair are Sold by Hair Vendors?

Let's look back at the first category that describes the types of wholesale hair people are looking for.

For the most part, you are going to find two types of human hair sold in the wholesale market. Within those two types of hair, they will be further broken down based on the overall quality and the price.

Let's take a look at what those two types of hair consist of and some of the cost factors involved with them.

Wholesale Raw Hair

  • Origin of the raw hair
  • The ratio of short strands in the raw hair bundles/closures/frontals
  • Type of weft construction

Wholesale Human Hair

  • Origin of the human hair
  • Machine Remy or other types of processing
  • Dyed hair
  • The ratio of short strands (single drawn/double drawn)

These are just some of the basics when talking to a manufacturer about hair quality.

wholesale hair bundles

(Having a good variety of curl pattern options is always a win!)

When you have a better understanding of these terms, you can better identify the actual quality level of the hair; you need to support your client base. Everyone says they want raw hair until they have to pull out their wallet and pay for it. Although it's always going to be the best quality.

The top countries raw hair sold in the market is sourced from:

  1. India (probably 80%)
  2. China
  3. Vietnam
  4. Burma/Myanmar
  5. Mongolia
  6. Philipines

I listed the raw hair sources above from the most volume to least volume by my estimates.

Depending on the country, the hair will be a little different.

Is Raw Hair Worth the Cost?

Raw hair extensions, wigs, closures, and frontals are the top quality products found in the market. But if you are thinking about selling unprocessed hair, make sure you understand the products are going to be much more expensive than selling the "normal bundles" that everyone currently buys. 

Raw hair only makes up about 5% of the hair sales on Private Label Wholesale, Private Label Extensions, Dropship Bundles, and Dropship Beauty, which supply over 10,000 hairstylists, hair entrepreneurs, and business owners.

I am not saying you shouldn't sell raw hair, just understand it's an exceptional market for it and generally for clients that don't mind spending big bucks!

Is raw hair worth the cost?

It depends on what you are trying to accomplish with your hair goals.

If you are looking to color raw 1b hair bundles to a 613 blonde or 60 platinum, it's highly suggested to have raw hair for the best results. 

Want to re-install your bundles a few times or last a few years?

Raw hair is your choice.

Want to do a quick weave? Change your sew-in every month and don't want to worry about the hair?

Use the standard human hair. This is what MOST people do, but not all.

What are some Raw Hair Tips for my Hair Business?

I want to quickly go over a few raw hair tips so that you have some additional knowledge about these products and what to look for.

For example, the raw wavy and raw curly hairs from India are some of the best sold on the market because it's the natural state of the hair. 

If you get raw hair sourced from China, it will need to be steamed curled. It's not a bad thing, but it's just not as good as the real deal. 

*Warning - The supply of wavy and curly hair from India has become much more difficult to source. Many Indian hair vendors are now steaming the hair to wavy and curly patterns and selling it as 100% unprocessed.

The trend is to have soft and silky hair, but it's a personal preference as to how well you want the extensions to match your natural hair. 

Our favorite raw hair course ratings are as follow:

Should my hair business sell raw hair? 

Having a raw hair option for your hair business is always a good idea. Dropshipping raw hair is a great option because the holding cost of inventory can be very expensive for one individual business unless they have a high volume of sales.

Why is Wholesale Human Hair, Virgin Hair, Remy Hair, so Popular?

Do you see I used a lot of terms in the question above? MOST of the time, these terms are being used to describe the same thing or a variation of a hair product.

A lot has changed over the years as far as the manufacturing and production of human hair weave, and wigs. 

Do you remember when processed hair smelled like corn chips?

This was mostly Pre-2015 when the smell of hair was a huge problem. 

Now, the way the hair is processed is different. Today, a process called Machine-Remy is used to align the cuticles of the hair.

Previously, manufacturers would give hair an acid bath that would strip the hair strands of their cuticles. This would reduce the chances of tangling once the weave or wig has been installed but destroy the integrity of the hair and also make it smell bad.

Today, the hair is soaked in a conditioner to soften the strands, and then a machine is used to re-align the hair cuticle to all be running in the same direction. 

This has really changed the game for hair vendors to offer a quality product at such a low price. Now the cost for a good quality bundle or human hair wig can be very affordable.

A woman can now change their hair almost weekly and still not break the bank. Having a selection of human hair wigs in their closet is becoming the norm. Back in the early 2000s to early 2010s, women were spending $100 - $200 bundles and $2500 for a wig. Now, this is a rare occurrence. 

How have things in the hair industry changed?

As a wholesale client, you can now pick up beautiful bob wigs made with human hair for under $60 bucks! Most of our clients are selling these between $125 - $250 without customization. That is way cheaper than the selling price of wigs from over a decade ago.

Now that we have gone over the basics of the hair quality for extensions and wigs let's go over more about vendors.

How do I Find a Wholesale Hair Vendor?

There are thousands of wholesale suppliers in the world!

Here are the Top-5 ways you can find a wholesale hair vendor:

  1. Google - Just search and go.
  2. Alibaba - Keep your fingers crossed.
  3. Hair Vendor Lists - A compilation of Google searches and Alibaba.
  4. Referrals - Although many hair business owners don't like to share their vendor info.
  5. Social Media - Once you are in the industry, you will be bombarded by sales associates on Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp.

You are going to have to find out what works best for you as far as finding the perfect hair vendor.

hair vendor meetings

(Meeting with hair vendors often involves hot tea even on blistering hot days)

Most of our wholesale hair clients for Private Label Wholesale have found us via our Hair Business Facebook Group or one of our sister websites. We have been helping clients start and supply their hair businesses since 2014, so we also usually pop up in Google when looking to start a hair company.

You need to do your research to make sure you are working with a reputable hair company and sales representative.

Why I block all Chinese Hair Vendors on Social Media when they Contact Me

It gets frustrating!

Did you get a message on Instagram for a Chinese hair vendor? 

Your entire following probably did too! We don't recommend vendors with these types of sales tactics. 

That's right; there are huge teams of sales associates that will reach out directly to you or your hair company. I understand it's just sales. The big problem for you is they are also going to message every one of your followers as well. 

I have personally been to these sales offices in China. I have watched dozens of women on their cell phones using a VPN (changes the location of your IP address so you can be on social media in China as it's not allowed) to be able to contact people in the USA.

Hair Vendor Messages

(Watch out for these companies that will also reach out to all your followers!)

Many new sales associates in China will do everything possible to get a sale. That includes directly reaching out to your clients. 

Anytime one of these sales associates follows one of our business Instagram pages, we immediately block them so they can find and reach out to our customers.

I advise you to do the same!

How Do I Send Payments to Purchase Wholesale Hair?

Different vendors will accept various types of payments. The most important thing is to be 100% safe with your money because it's easy to get scammed by an overseas business. 

They know you are not hopping on a flight to China to find them, and even if you did get on that flight, the odds of catching someone would be very slim.

The top 5 most common payment methods wholesale vendors accept: 

  • Bank Wire Transfer
  • Western Union
  • PayPal
  • AliPay
  • Credit Card

You really have NO protection when sending payments via Bank Wire Transfer and Western Union. If you send the funds and they don't send the hair, you are basically out of luck.

Paying safely via PayPal, AliPay, or Credit Card is a good idea, but some vendors will charge you an additional fee between 3% - 5% to do so. 

Buying $2,000 worth of wholesale hair and have to pay a 5% fee? That would cost you $100 and can add up. This fee is also calculated on the shipping cost.

Sending payments via the safer methods can be great, but you are also paying for that safety. 

What payments does Private Label Wholesale take, and how much are the additional fees?

We take PayPal and Credit Card payments with NO ADDITIONAL FEES as we have negotiated such a low rate with our processors. It's one of the advantages of being a hybrid USA/CHINA vendor.

(This is NOT how to send money to China. It's just a great photo from a Private Label, Photoshoot!)

Should I Order Hair Samples?

Yes, it's always a good idea to order some samples of hair before making a more significant purchase. 

Our Sample Kit is loved by clients!

hair sample kit

Doing so will give you a better idea if you are going to like the exact style & quality of hair offered at a price. Remember, it's always at that price.

As mentioned above, there are many different factors in the pricing and quality of the hair. Some you wouldn't realize without being an expert.

The opinions of hair will always vary. I can honestly say we have had so many Dropshipping clients tell us that they ordered hair from Private Label Extensions. Didn't like it. Then ordered from our Dropshipper, and loved the hair. 

It's 100% the same hair! Every time. Different people will have mixed emotions and feelings about a product.

Why Should I Consider Private Label Wholesale as My Hair Vendor?

Private Label Wholesale is a unique hair vendor that leverages the manufacturer relationships in China and mergest them with the technology and service in the USA.

Some of the Wholesale key benefits are:

  • Easily place wholesale orders safely online.
  • Use a recognized payment system like PayPal or Credit Card.
  • USA based customer service team.
  • Get access to our monthly Wholesale Days.
  • 100% proven products and trusted team.
  • Easy returns & exchanges sent to Atlanta, not China!
  • A growing variety of products and services.

Our team takes the feedback from our thousands of clients to always find ways to better perfect our system. Every 1% of improvement is important to us.

    This was an amazing article, I learned so much in one article, it was very informative and so helpful. THANK YOU FOR SHARING AND BEING A BLESSING!! JUST AMAZING


  • Kyra McElroy

    This is the greatest and best information that can be given to people who want to start their own hair selling businesses. I knew this company was all that and a bag of chips when I first looked at the name of the company I knew that they had premium quality. This company has surpassed my expectations of a great company to do business with because the hair quality is beyond premium it’s luxuriously phenomenal!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉And the other products offered are more than amazing! And the different possible ways that you guys offer people to get them started and selling is absolutely phenomenal! I am just overjoyed at the decision I made to start with dropshipping with you guys almost a year ago! There’s sooooo much that’s available for training on hair, marketing, etc that it’s almost unbelievable!


  • Christina M

    This article is very informative and helps someone like me (beginner in learning about hair extensions) gain knowledge of the industry. This article takes so much information and condensed it so it’s not so over whelming… I feel very educated and see the PLE has no problem with sharing knowledge that will help others with being just as successful! Thank you!! 💕


  • Crystal Williams

    I have read this article multiple times including when you first posted it back in the beginning of last month. I have the link saved on my home screen and I use it as a reference when I need to answer questions from my customers. I’m actually working on a “Q & A” page for my website using the info provided in the article. It literally answers every question I’ve been asked in regards to hair extensions. I’m so thankful for this wealth of knowledge and I make sure to utilize it on a daily basis. I appreciate you Mikey!!!


  • Ebonie Warren

    I love this article! I use to be affiliate for selling hair .. Now that I have my own hair company that I just launch .. This was very helpful .. I cant wait to order my hair samples and bundles


  • Christian Aze’Nicole

    One thing I love about Private Label is that you don’t mind educating the uneducated. You are always finding ways to help us out, even when you aren’t a persons vendor. You’re always there. This article was very informative. I never knew that was the reason hair smelled like corn chips. I just assumed it was where it was stored. But I have noticed that there isn’t a smell anymore. Thank goodness, because honestly, I was afraid to sell hair if it had a odor. Who wants to smell like corn chips right lol. Also, I had no clue that they would be contacting my followers. I just started my Instagram account for my business and have only posted one picture and they have bombarded it with sale offers. I’m definitely blocking them today. Before finding Private Label, I like many others have used Chinese Wholesale Vendors. The fees are ridiculous! Every time I use to place a order and they send my invoice, I would always say, I could have bought more hair with that money. Also, I have always wondered if Alibaba was a protected way of paying. I’ve had vendors in the past ask can I pay using Alibaba and I would always suggest using PayPal.

    Being in this industry, there is so much to know. And right when you think you have learned it all, changes are made. This article informed me of things I didn’t know, and deemed as a stupid question and didn’t want to ask. It also has gave me a better understanding of how the wholesale business works when it comes to vendors.


  • Drae Harden

    PLE is extremely unique. Not simply because they are us based and offer wholesale at a reasonable price. But simply because they are haters. You cannot find a company that wants you to win whether it’s with them or not. PLE provides ACCURATE and knowledge worthy info for people wanting to start a hair business in general. There is no requirement for this information no gimmick or anything. And it’s great because PLE knows how much this help black women and black entrepreneurs. This is truly a blessing.


  • Marka'elia Nelson

    Um, okay! So this was absolutely amazing! As somebody who has been wearing Extensions and Wigs since I was 16 years old (I’m 30 now), some of this information is very new to me and obviously SO extremely helpful. Mikey, every time you post a blog, I always make sure I have my “business notebook” and pen ready and my kids are sleep so I can focus and take all the notes! I can’t thank you enough for these and all the help! I have done my 2+ years of research trying to find my forever hair vendor (by testing out hair and being scammed multiple times), I am so glad to have found PLE. So much stress was lifted off my chest the first time I bought and had PLE’s hair installed! Even better, when it was 2 weeks later and the hair was STILL just as soft and beautiful as when I first bought it. But I have a few questions! (I wont post them all, I don’t want this to be the longest comment) So between Human hair, Virigin hair and Remy hair, is there a difference? I wrote down “different terms but usually describing the same thing or variation of a hair product” but I’m still slightly confused. Is the pricing different, is Remy Hair mostly the curl patterns and Human hair is straight and Virgin Hair is Wavy? (I just pulled that out of the sky, but still a legit question) Haha! Question two, Why is having Raw Hair as an option a good idea? I love that PLE has it! (I just bought some, should be here Saturday!!!!) But should it be an option even if you’ve never had one sale on it? Question three, is it recommended to have more than one Vendor? If so, why? and lastly, for now, is there a specific reason, other than price and/or texture, that somebody would only want certain hair from certain/specific places? Like I mentioned, I may have been wearing Extensions and Wigs for quite sometime but no vendor, hairstylist or even google has been as helpful and informative as PLE has been to me. I’m in heaven here and I love y’all! Thank you so so SO much for all you do, done and will do! Take care!


  • Ashley

    This information is so helpful. The world we live in today, everyone is always looking to get over on you. PLE has been not only affordable, but helpful with resources and available to answer any questions. PLE wants YOU to grow as a business and care about their customers deeply. Thank you Mike and the whole PLE team for all the valuable resources!


  • Danielle.Y

    Thank you Mikey you have helped me for now 2 1/2 years understanding the hair game and helping me push forward. I appreciate you all at PLE because you are honest and 2020 that is hard to find . I love that you continue to keep all of inform what it is going on in the hair game and know that our success is your success. Thank you truthfully with all my heart because i have done tones of research and then i can easily come to you all with questions and you have never disappoint us. You and the entire PLE crew Rock God Bless you all


  • Cent Salomon

    Once I decided to be an entrepreneur in the hair industry, I can count on my fingers and toes and some, how many sleepless nights I had staying up doing research. Learning how to test hair, dropshiping options but most importantly finding the best vendor to satisfy my every business need. Once ready to reach out to the vendors on Alibaba, I became absolutely overwhelmed by all the marketing tactics. 8A, 9A, 10A hair, Mink hair, Virgin Remy, Brazilian, Indian ect. Plus my questions were answered indirectly not to mention shipping cost just to order a sample was almost the same price as the sample itself and Dropshiping shipping times were ridiculous. My mind was completely scattered. I came extremely close to giving up on my dream. And then I came across PLE. My Interview with Toni on Feb 21st was A huge breath of fresh air. She answered all of my questions Crystal clear. She Explained the different options available. Also how vendors use the whole 10A hair, Mink hair crap as a way to get you to buy. Most importantly she welcomed me with open arms. The fact that PLE offered drop shipping with an app link directly to my website, wholesale which allows me to have hair on hand and so much. Hair University helps me understand the industry more and more every time. Thanks to everyone at PLE for helping me have a better understanding in the industry and standing by me on my business venture. You guys freaking Rock


  • Sonya Brown

    This article is very informative. I have been working on my hair business since 2019 and have searched all over for vendors. A lot of the key points made I’ve dealt with from personal experience. It’s very hard to find a trustworthy vendor. At the end of the day TRUST is what you will need to have in your wholesale vendor especially if it’s oversees. I was extremely happy after joining the PLE family fb page. It was great to see that this was a USA based vendor who just doesn’t care only about sales. PLE also takes the time out to provide the resources to educate their clients. This is a very rare find. Thank you Mikey Moran and the rest of the PLE team. Let’s BUY SELL & REPEAT EVERYONE!!!


  • DaQuana Dudley

    I just want to marry Mikey for writing this article. It’s like you took my inner thoughts and took the time to write them out and share them with the world. I approve of ALL of this snaps finger, sips wine, and flips my RAW natural wave PLE bundles that I currently have installed 😝


  • Slayyed Hair and Beauty

    Wow, this article was so informative! I had no idea some of the vendors that write me on IG could also be contacting all of my clients! That really can mess up your profit margin. Why would they buy from us when the vendor is contacting them directly?! I personally felt such a sense of relief once I found PLE and PLW. As a business owner with more than one business, you have to find a way to make life easier for yourself. I have searched for years for a reputable, local wholesale company and nothing worked. I tried a company before that sent me hair so damaged and dyed, that when I co-washed it majority of it turned gray! The fact that PLE not only has websites, a Facebook group and customer service emails that people ACTUALLY respond to and quickly sold me immediately. I can relax knowing that I can hop on a quick flight and go to the location if I want to. Not 25 hours, language barriers, and hoping to see a real store. Thanks again guys for what you’ve established, you’re helping tons of us increase our sales by providing a reliable, quality product for our customers every time.


  • Anna Barnes

    Being new to the game, I appreciate all the knowledge that Mickey Moran has provided. I am PROUD to be part of the PLE team!!! I am excited to get started in this business and be a success. THIS IS AMAZING!!! This article shines so much light and provides direction in a seller’s mindset!!! I cant wait to be a PRO like Mickey!! I love being able to pass this information on to my clients and be a knowledgeable vendor of TRESSES BY ANNANIKEYA!!! Remember…. “Its a BOUTIQUE lifestyle!!”


  • Michele Murphy

    Thank you for this blog post. It was very informative and well thought out. You broke down all aspects of Virgin hair and the differences of what to buy versus what isn’t worth it.. Showing what’s quality. Bravo Mikey, I am very happy to be on this platform with you giving so much knowledge and making people’s dreams really come true. I am very new here and definitely look forward to working with PLE.


  • Tyra Moore

    What I summarize from this article is that finding a wholesale hair vendor requires integrity, risk, knowledge of industry terms and practices and patience. Finding a good vendor is like finding a business partner that will rock with you when you have problems. They will help you with things that you don’t know. They want to grow with you. A good hair vendor not only wants you to spend money with them; but, they want your business to succeed.


  • Keesh King

    Well first I want to jump down to the paragraph about the Chinese vendors and social media.. listen chy they wreck my nerves. I mean really I’m tired of blocking them and you cant get rid of them.They just keep coming and coming.. no respect and will steal your pictures quickly.
    Overall I learned a lot I was scared of selling raw hair because it’s high maintenance to me. My customers don’t know how to properly care for it. But reading the article I may need to include it and stop missing out on the bag. I may need to stress care instructions included in the package.
    All in all I have wasted money on trying out vendors. Until ple. I have never met a group of people who only want to see you win. You give all the tools to make one successful. All you have to do is show up with ambition and ple will provide the tools to become a successful entrepreneur. Listen I appreciate everything that was provided for me. I’m manifesting success over here. So while I’m manifesting I’ll say thank you for the brand new laptop in advance.


  • LaNiece Watson

    It was after reading this post a month ago deciding to open my own hair Business, this gave me so information and as far as being a customer myself due to the great prices PLE always have. Since I was in 16 and learned to do my own hair, I always wanted the best grade of hair, the best length for me and the price. I knew in order to have the best quality of hair you have to spend a little more. PLW offered everything at my doorstep when I realized the best thing I can offer to other women in that love good quality of hair. This was a no brainer for me. I was able to get my logo and put my logo on my packaging bags and tags to go on my wigs and bundles to sell. This is the best investment that I should of made a long time ago and I’m glad for my first 3 weeks of getting a good amount of inventory my business is coming up and I just have to thank PLE/PLW for giving me the tools and knowledge that will put me on the road to success.


  • Takeala Lewis

    This was so information that was well needed. I spent years looking for a vendor I could trust and WORKING OFF MY PHONE then boom here comes PLE to the rescue just when I was about to give up. This is truly my one-stop-shop and my go to for help advise suggestions and new ideas. There is always something here at PLE TO KEEP THE MOTIVATION OF THERE CLIENTS GOING AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT I WILL KEEP REFERRING AND BUY.SELL.REPEAT.


  • TRish hUdson

    This was very informative! I learned a lot that I didn’t know between the different types of hair. Know I feel like I know what to ask for myself when selecting a great type of hair as well as becoming a distributor of selling hair as part of my beauty business. Awesome information and very knowledgeable thanks for providing this article. Makes me want to learn more


  • Shawna Orange

    I absolutely love this article. Most vendors would not/ don’t share all of this insider information with its clients but you guys do. That’s why PLE is so amazing. I’ve had vendors in the past, that lacked customer service and retention, but expected thousands to be spent with them. I stumbled upon PLE in 2016 and have used you guys as my sole vendor ever since. Literally every item that is requested is discussed and actually obtained!!!🤯🤯 Yes, it’s mind blowing in the most positive way. They have literally created my new career and website. Between Mikey’s willingness to share insider knowledge and the instant customer service, I am now a successful business owner. #BUY #SELL #REPEAT is the way!! A million thanks to Mikey and his amazing team!


  • Brittany Harris

    Love is in the hair! The hair industry alone in the United States in 2018 was a 87.9 billion dollar industry. Furthermore, the estimated global market reach is projected to reach 211.1 billion by 2025! This article written by Private Label Extensions is an essential must read article for both the consumer and the merchant. It highlighted many of the FAQs asked by customers and new coming hair entrepreneurs. An intricate part of any business especially the hair industry is having an in depth knowledge of the various types of hair, how it’s created, understanding the behind the scenes of your hair products (i.e bundles, wigs, frontals, & closures), and lastly how to market them. I have been a proud wholesale & personal client of PLE for 2+ years, and they have made my business journey so smooth from providing quality hair, hair care products, business services such as drop ship for my hair company and customers. PLE is my #1 choice and go to wholesale vendor, and I’m elated to have found an US base vendor. I’ve managed to build a business relationship over the years only to better serve my clients/customers. This article is so vital so be sure to read it in its entirety. It answers and addresses the unknowns that many hair business owner & consumers want to know. It’s a must read and will definitely lead you in the proper direction.


  • DeAqua Morgan

    I just want to say that Private Label Extensions is the best wholesale company I have come across. They make sure they give their clients everything they need to succeed including tons of already researched information that they have done. Mikey Moran is an amazing businessman. If his clients do not succeed then he will not succeed. He provides every platform for this to happen. It’s fail proof.
    The Integrity that Private Label Extensions carry is The best in the Industry.
    Thank you Mikey and Private Label Extensions for all the amazing blessings you give. I am forever grateful to have found you.


  • Mareka Johnson

    Excellent article and very informative. I always wanted to start my own line of hair/ hair products since 1997. For years a looked for vendors and requested information/ hair samples. When I first found private Label Extensions your company offered wholesale and wholesale packages at that time I had a investor but the investor dropped out of the deal. But I never gave up my dream but I did have to postpone it because I did not have enough money to purchase wholesale on my own. I remember when your company first started dropship it was a free app on shopify. I signed up on a free trail for a shopify store found your app and downloaded it to my store and started inporting items to my store. But I never got to open my store I was helping to care for my brother that had cancer, raising my two kids, and working a full-time job. But I guess your company stop the shopify app at that time I emailed Zakiyrah in 2016 and she said that your company started a new dropship program called dropship bundles and emailed me the information. Later I joined your facebook group. But I still could not afford to start my business. But I started writing a business and marketing plan, reading lots of your blog post, obtained my domain name, social media handles, and wrote down and named all products including edge control. I also started writing different blog topics that I would write about. Fast forward in 2019 both my brother and grand father past away from cancer she months apart. But I kept saving the little money I could and moved forward. Losing my love ones was the motivation that I used to not give up no matter what. Than covid hit finally drying to use the coupon gor a free website I notice that wordpress websites were on sale. I check my balance in my bank account and purchase a website than on 06/23/20 I my LLC was filed I have been really working on my business to get it together and made my first order on the drop. For years I looked for a professional and trustworthy vendor that I can partner with to provide quality products to my prospective customers. And I finally found your company that has a passion for this industry and give back so much to your customers and the black hair community etc in general. You and your company gives so much opportunity, resources, and education to prospective entrepreneurs and small and large hair businesses. And I just want to say thank you for all that you and your staff do. It is greatly appreciated. Your company makes real dreams come true.

    The wholesale info article is a great read for upcoming hair business owners. The info presented in the article are things to consider when starting. Research is very vital. There are a variety of origins that extensions are sourced from depending on the quality of hair that business owners prefer to offer. India and China are the leading origins. Finding a vendor is not easy but very time consuming because of scammers and wanting to have the best quality of hair. There are more bad vendors than good, so it is vital to do your research. Many wholesale vendors offer a variety of payment methods, but there is not protection which is very risky. It’s a possibility that you could lose funds and not receive product. There are many search tools and websites that can assist with finding the perfect vendor such as alibaba, google, etc. Social media such as Facebook and Instagram can assist as well. It is very significant to build and have a great relationship with your vendor. Virgin and raw extensions are the most popular extensions on the market, with raw hair being more expensive although it is the best quality to offer. The market for virgin hair is undoubtedly hot right now, so it’s a great time to find success of your own in this high-grossing industry. If you are unsure on quality, purchasing samples to test would be a great idea. Due to extensions smelling like corn chips, processing extensions has changed and been better over the years. Once you have all of this lined up, you can sale your business and attract buyers. There are many cons in starting a hair business, but I feel that Private Label would be a great vendor to avoid all hazardous risk and will turn cons into pros. With the company’s knowledge, you will become knowledgeable and be able to run a successful hair business.

    I have sold & bought over 100,000 in hair extensions. I have dealt with good hair & bad hair. Also gained & lost numerous customers due to quality. I have ran into PLE over a year ago but just thought it was another hair company. With my recent bulk purchases annnnd following the Facebook group, I found PLE to be refreshing. A lot the information above is what I wish I knew back starting in 2014 when I started installing and selling hair extensions. All the way up to year ago, I learned I was coming about selling hair extensions all wrong. I have a large clientele base but horrible knowledge about hair extensions which caused a big loss. This information will save a bunch of beginners even seasoned stylist like myself some money and mistakes in the long run.

    This article is very informative for anyone thinking about starting an extension business, and it also serves as a refresher for the businesses that are already started. Thank you for answering the question I had on Raw Hair Extensions. You also went into great detail explaining the different types of hair and sources from different vendors. I really appreciate that. After a person fully reads this article it is guaranteed that a decision will be made on choosing Private Label Wholesale as their source for their hair supply. When I searched for a hair company I wanted a company that would be concerned about me as a person not about the money that would be received from me. Private Label Extensions has been a company of integrity and excellent customer service. Thank you for informing everyone in this article about how our followers are being harassed from hair vendors in China. I am going to start blocking them all.

    After being a stylist for 25+years the frustration of buying hair and receiving questionable quality hair lead me to PLE. I’ve been very happy with the hair. The PLE staff is wonderful and work with you! Now I can send my clients to a website that fills all the boxes and I get so much information about the hair business. Much thanks🙂
    No one I know gets more from their vendor.

    The Best hair vendor is one who can provide you with the best products at a reasonable price that you can resell to your customers knowing that they are getting top quality products.

    Private label extensions has provided that for me being a new owner within the hair industry trying to locate the best vendors and not knowing where to turn is not an easy task but private label made it possible.

    They also educated me on the wholesale process and what to look for.
    How the wholesale market works and how they are bringing overseas vendors to us here within the USA!

    Thanks for helping other businesses like mine become successful!


  • Germaine Josp

    Hi PLE wholesale,
    Hey thanks for sharing this info l learned some things l never knew about before like the. Differences between Indian, Chinese, and Vietnamese hair.
    l want to thank you guys for finding an Indian Hair vendor for us its been an answer to my prayers l love this hair its very beautiful and it last two or more years if properly cared for. Second,
    Learned some new things about the hair industry manufacturering process. The first one is the fact that manufacturers are listening to it customers and came up better why process human hair without smelly chemicals a big plus in my book. Alinging the curticles of the hair is great idea. This is a shocker to me l often get DM’s from Chinese vendors but had no idea they were also contacting my customers gonna have use that block button more. l have been a PLE & PLW since 2019 and l can truly say it been a huge burden lifted off me because they have literally done the hard work for me. You guys can look elsewhere for a vendor if you want to but trust me l have tried to do that in pass most of the time l got ripped off. Hey, l am staying put because once again they’re not just selling hair but are educators as well.
    Thanks PLE

    Thank you again🤝
    There is mounds of information out help with starting a successful Hair Business BUT this article just excellently summarized it all. No information overload✅. For anyone wanting to start a hair business, this is it!

    Above all, I too learnt something new 😂. Block them vendors wanting to sell hair to you and stalking your potential clients. For me, contacting my potential/existing clients with lower prices for poor quality hair is a deal breaker!

    Thank you Mickey🤝🤝
    BeEy


  • KAyy

    It’s the feeling of “I’ve made the best choice with choosing PLE as my vendor ” for me ! A whole article of confirmation that I’m headed in the right direction in my beauty business. Good read !


  • LAtisia Coco MCDONALD

    This was a great article and I totally agree with you about those Chinese Vendors. I like using PLE as my vendor.


  • Yasmin Harvin

    This article is what every person needs to read before starting in this business. With all of the scams and people wanting you to pay $100-1000 for vendors. This lets you do it on your own and still be successful. I am a lifetime member and have been working with PLE for 3 years! And I love it. I graduated from college in one year and can’t wait to see how much more my business was will grow with the more free time I will have.


  • AIisha

    Mikey and team super awesome. Very knowledgeable and provide tons of information and details to getting great quality hair and products to help expand everyone’s business. The best vendor on the market providing excellent products.


  • Delorian Giles

    Mikey I appreciate you taking the time to write this out. This helped me soooo much! I want to go as far as you with my hair business. So this helped.

    It helped me understand the process you had to go through to hand pick your products and how each business owner is going to have to do that if they want to be a successful and knowledgeable of the products. I appreciate your attention to detail because it gives new business owners like myself something to capitalize on and it gives me peace of mind knowing my products were picked based off of quality. Many clients are noticing quality hair is a better investment than other hair. I did not know how bundles were made so that was a cool insight you gave us. I haven’t played much with color but I know Raw hair for a nice platinum color is the way to go. It’s worth the money!
    I’d love to do what you do in Denver. This article helped me see a little bit of what you had to do to be a vendor in the US and it’s a lot of work but very inspiring.


  • Brittney Joyner

    I’ve have been struggling on where and how to start my hair business but the article just gave me hope.It’s very informative about vendors and i will say that most people aren’t like you,wanting to help others and give information helpful information that inspires them to start a business.A good hair vendor is cheaper than a good therapist,God bless!


  • Lucy Felder

    When I started this hair journey two years ago, I noticed that the most significant issue with hair was finding hair that colors and a vendor in the U.S. Once I started doing my research and found ple, I used their hair sample kit and I used my income tax money to invest in myself. I also read their returns and guidelines in the event that things went wrong, which is something that you cannot do with a hair vendor in China due to their language barriers and turn around time. Ple has kept me in business for the last two years and has grown my business. When looking for a vendor I recommend the following: a U. S vendor, facts about the hair (which is found on the website ex. how far the hair can lift), and the quality of the hair (make sure that you take advantage of the sample kits to gain an idea of how the hair is and use hair color on it to see how the hair responds to it (especially for the young adults they love color).

  • Cynthia Adams

    This is an excellent article. I wish I had come across it during my first search for a vendor before I found PLE as a vendor. There is a lot of great information for someone who is trying to research the hair extension business or wanting to know more about hair extensions. You have broken down all of the confusing terms used by different vendors so that the reader can have a good understanding of what they are potentially buying. I would definitely recommend this article to anyone looking for a wholesale vendor.

I’ve been in the industry myself for 4 years on and off and I’m still learning more daily with the help of Private Label.

I look forward to more informative article like such. Thank you Private Label!
